Probably everyone recognizes a life preserver. I photographed this to make a point. There are a lot of people in the United States who think the U.S. is in a downward tailspin, and maybe going under. I have been thinking on this topic for a few days since I read a quote by Senator Rand Paul about the U S being in a crisis. I searched for some scriptures for insight into this. I am writing them here as they are self-explanatory:
" And THE LORD shall utter His voice before His army; for His camp is very great; for HE is strong that executeth His Word; for the day of THE LORD is terrible, and who can abide it? Therefore, also now, saith THE LORD, turn ye even to Me with all your heart, and with fasting and with weeping and with mourning; and rend your hearts and not your garments, and turn unto THE LORD your GOD; for HE is gracious and merciful , slow to anger and of great kindness, and repenteth Him of the evil. Who knoweth if HE will return and repent, and leave a blessing..." Joel 2: 11-14a, King James Holy Bible.
I also wrote some of the scriptures from the book of Revelation about JESUS being alive forever in heaven on this blog of mine :
words that WORK is a mission for The LIVING LORD JESUS, and all content on this blog and for words that WORK [that I began in state of Georgia in 1991] is created by and written by and photographed by me Gloria Poole, of Missouri. The Holy Bible is not copyrighted but my words and art and photos are copyrighted.
I am posting this photo I photographed of a cross on a necklace as a reminder that this is a Christian website that belongs to me Gloria Poole of Missouri. The Christian cross does not show JESUS on it because JESUS rose from the dead and is alive in heaven. Read Revelations for the words of JESUS about that.
For the record and to establish provenance of art I have already created also: the art I have created and signed and posted to this blog of mine is part of an on-going series of art I created since year 1991 beginning in Atlanta, GA that "blossomed" in year 2005 in Aurora, Colorado when I lived there for one year [May 2006-May 2007], and art began to really become an integral part of my efforts to save the baby humans from premeditated destruction. In 2005, I began to realize I could use the art to illustrate my talking points in some cases, and to build a secondary "career' for me as artist. In the year 2006 when I had endured and lived to tell about it a violent crash down a flight of stairs and had trauma, fractures, concussion, because my then-husband DBP tried to kill me to 'make it look like an accident" and he tried to twist off my broken leg, I had immobility for months except on crutches and walking boot after surgery to repair fractures and implant metal. As I sat with leg propped up I began to draw daily and paint to occupy the time and my mind. I also began to post art to the web on my blogs and websites, and also photographs I had photographed. I began a series of art then that is named "ethnic series by Gloria" [me] to attempt to draw and paint an art work of every ethnic group tribe, language, culture in the world and I created eight initial oil paintings in the first batch and posted them to the web on domains of mine. I moved from Aurora to zip code 80203 for 2 and 1/2 years and then moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 with the art I had in my possession at that time. I paint some of the sketches I created in do-overs into oils on canvas and those are very visible on the web. I put many of them on my mini exhibit of art at https://mini-exhibition.blogspot.com, and also on my Picasa albums at https://picasaweb.google.com/gloriapoole.
I, Gloria Poole, am a white, Southern Baptist Christian, brown-haired woman, single-again, twice-divorced,natural mother of only two children who are grown daughters named Jennifer and Leigh, and also a republican, personhood promoter, prolife activist-blogger, photographer, artist in all mediums, poet, author, illustrator, cartoonist, writer, University of Georgia alumna, U S citizen born in the state of Georgia [but I lived in several places including New York, UK briefly, Nebraska, South Carolina, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina], former TV producer,tweeter, Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri [but before that in Georgia, UK, other states], owner/writer for words that WORK, and Tapestry of LIFE, photographer, and citizen journo . Gloria Poole is my real, born with legal name and I resumed my full maiden name including my surname of Poole legally by Court order at the time of divorce from male DBP in Colorado in Oct, 2007 at Centennial, Colorado; and I also removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore at the time of final decree in Oct 2007 . I was glad to end that four year horrible marriage of multiple trauma and injuries to me caused by male DBP, [which I testified about in Court on several occasions ]. That second divorce is public record in the state of Colorado, and my first divorce is public record in the state of Georgia. I have created art regularly since 1991, and I had formal training in drawing and in mixing colors /paint and painting in oils and I post much of the art I create on blogs of mine. You can see some of that art on one of my name blogs at https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com and see the about me page of that blog for the list of art blogs I own and post art too, that are all different. Also, words that WORK is the original mission-oriented "work" I began about 1991. When I lived in Colorado and had TV show of Tapestry of LIFE I added that audio-visual component to it and morphed it to Life Media & Publishing and Tapestry of LIFE. Criminals stole all the domains of those by breaking into my web-hosting accounts using ID they stole from me; but two blogs of it remain that I own and create still and those 2 are this blog and also the official Tapestry of LIFE blog at https://tapestry-of-life-LLP.blogspot.com.
